While Holding Esther is aimed primarily at caregivers, Jabota Bridge will be intended for the orphans themselves.

The new drama, already in the preproduction phase, will feature the character Naomi and the children living in the safe house across Jabota Bridge as they work together through life’s adventures and struggles.

We envision producing more than 150 episodes of Jabota Bridge for vulnerable children to listen to on radio, the internet or solar-powered MP3 players. The young listeners will be able to identify with the characters in the drama, many of whom share the same traumatic backgrounds experienced by the listeners.

Although kids can listen to the dramas on their own, the program will have the most impact when caring adults join the youths to discuss the content and how to apply it. A discussion page will be available for each episode to help guide the interaction.
